Abstract

Despite the wide popularity of the pedicled temporalis myofascial flap, aesthetic management of the temporalis donor site has received little attention. A technique for immediate camouflage of the temporalis flap donor site with cold-cure methyl methacrylate, either alone or in combination with residual muscle in the temporal fossa, is presented. A retrospective evaluation of this technique in 34 consecutive patients was undertaken, with particular reference to the aesthetic results and morbidity associated with the use of cold-cure acrylic for this form of reconstruction. Apart from transient postoperative swelling and neuropraxia, no major or lasting complications associated with the use of cold-cure acrylic were recorded. The aesthetics of the camouflaged temporalis donor site by acrylic alone, or when combined with part of the temporalis muscle, was judged objectively to be excellent in 25 patients, satisfactory in 3 patients, and poor in 2 patients. 4 patientswho did not have acrylic reconstruction, but had part of the temporalis muscle transposed to Conceal the anterior fossa depression, leavingthe posterior fossa unreconstructed, were judged mostly as satisfactory. Histology of the soft tissues around an acrylic implant after nearly 2 years confirmed the good biocompatibility of this material. It isconcluded that this technique is a safe and reliable method for immediate camouflaging of the temporal fossa after harvesting a temporalis muscle flap.
